Blogging Blank

 You'll have noticed that I haven't blogged for a few weeks, I've been fine, but I hit the blogging blank wall, so I stopped.

What's a blogging blank?
Well it's not that I didn't have anything to write about, because my blogging schedule is still looking at me accusingly from my desk. The problem was that I simply couldn't write anything interesting about the subjects I'd scheduled, so instead of writing rubbish I took a break.

So what's stopping me?
Actually I think I got a bit obsessed about writing 500 words for every post and the reality is some things just don't warrant that many words. Also blogging should share things with readers, but they can easily be snippets, pictures, videos or sound files rather than long articles. Just because something isn't that long doesn't mean it won't have useful and interesting information in it.

Losing focus
I think one of the big problems is that the blog has become a bit too work-focused rather than life focused, so I'm looking at moving all the worky stuff on to my website and taking this blog back to where it started as being about life outside work.

Watch out next week
Because A Life More Lived will be back!

  1. excatly, a few well-chosen words are more useful than 'fluff' and often a picture says more than words can.
